Anyone have ALL restrictions lifted at 4 weeks?

I was released for everything at 5 weeks. But I was already back to work full time for over a week then. I was released to drive at 2 weeks and given the ok to return to work part time at 2 weeks which I did. I worked 4-6 hr day from 2 weeks to 4 weeks and went back full time on my 4 week date. I am feeling great the only problem is sleeping and that is getting much better. I am able to sleep 4-6 hours at a time now. I was only sleeping 1-2 hours at a time in the begining. I must recover quickly because I see a lot of sisters who at 6-8 weeks feel they still are not ready to return to work or their normal routine. I asm a little scared about sex and havent attempted that yet. I thing my husband is a little concerned also he is ok with the wait as of now.
I get tired still but nothing unbearable I just take a nap if it gets really bad.

Anyone have ALL restrictions lifted at 4 weeks?

I am 5 weeks post op today and was released from my restrictions yesterday at an appt with the my doctor. The appointment was to get a release date to return to work, but when I asked him about the restrictions on lifting, straining, pushing, pulling, etc., and intercourse he said "you should be fine; you're healing very well...just don't overdo anything...still take it a little easy. I go back to work next week and feel great other than being tired. And while he "released" my restrictions, I'm still going to wait at least another week for intimacy. Just makes me nervous to think about it already!

Thanks ladies. I was just shocked to be released so early.

I had another HOT night, and tried to sleep in my own bed. Did not work at all. At this point, I don't think I will ever get to go back to my own bed. I got in bed fine... but along come the dogs and I kept rolling on my tummy and then I'd have to roll back and then the dog would wake up and wanna know what was going on... so I'd get a cold wet nose in my face.... aggghhh.

Back to the couch. I was out asleep super fast, and only woke up about 6 times or so. Believe it or not, that was better sleep than I have had in awhile.

Nope..... I am not ready for all that yet. I am too pooped to party like that... LOL.

Thanks for all the stories and suggestions. I am going to listen to my body and you all.... and only do what I can do. And I am not going to feel bad about it either. Whew. I feel better already!
